DUI Suspect Shot by Cranston Police During Saturday Morning Traffic Stop

Posted by Matthew Marin | Apr 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

During the early morning hours on Saturday, a driver failed to halt during a traffic stop.  After finally stopping, the operator exited the vehicle and pointed a weapon at the officers.  The Cranston Police Officers opened fire, and the suspect sustained non-life threatening injuries.  To read more about the incident, visit the projo website:http://www.providencejournal.com/news/police-fire/20140426-driver-shot-by-cranston-police-after-pulling-gun-at-dui-stop.ece

As a Rhode Island DUI Lawyer, I always advise clients to refuse to submit to the standardized field sobriety tests.  However, you must always be compliant and polite with the officers involved.  Never refuse to obey commands or routine traffic stops can turn into horror stories such as the one above.
